Dele Alli scores first TWO Everton goals in win at Blackpool despite Frank Lampard set to AXE flop after just six months | The Sun

DELE ALLI scored a brace for Everton against Blackpool in a pre-season friendly despite reportedly facing the axe just six months after his free transfer from Tottenham.

The 26-year-old joined the Toffees in the January transfer window for free, hoping to stop the rot that was eating away at his playing career at Spurs.


However, in 11 games played for Everton in the final stages of last season, Alli failed to score or assist.

Luckily for Frank Lampard's side, they narrowly avoided relegation from the top flight thanks to the likes of Richarlison stepping up.

And despite Everton looking to move Alli on just six months after his move, the former England star turned out for the Toffees in a pre-season friendly.

Everton beat Blackpool 4-2 thanks to goals by Vitaliy Mykolenko, Tom Davies and an Alli brace.
